Subject: Wonderful Invasion Tale.
Great production values on this extra-terrestrial invasion story. The sound is a little too bass (needs more treble for sound definition) and there is a volume reduction of about 30 seconds during the last couple of minutes of the summing up at the end of Chapter 5 (the final chapter). Otherwise, great pacing and escalation of the complications and dangers inherent in reacting to the invasion. Well done for as limited as the studio technology was at the time. Bravo !

Subject: Chilling and well acted.
This little gem is well worth a listen.
An original alien invasion and survival tale from the author of Day Of The Triffids. Very well acted and truly chilling. There is some actual chemistry between the main caractors and Wyndham's writing really shines in this exellent Canadian production. Though done in 1965 this radio drama is as fresh as if it was done yesterday.
